5 milky smooth haiku

IMGP1692

smooth and still

no milk from this cow 

forever

  1. This cast statue of a cow guards the entrance to the Black Rock veterinary surgery. There is not much call on bovine healing skills in suburban bayside Melbourne

feathers like milk froth

down so smooth

  1. Some lovely imagery in this collection– it all worked well–from the strawberry milkshake sunset to the frothy bird breast and that Cow picture fooled me–I thought it was a real at first 🙂

    1. Thanks for your compliments Vashti. Lifelike statues of farm animals are common in Australia and often used as an advertisement outside a business like at this vet except a cow is more appropriate in farming communities not suburban Melbourne. Magpies have brown eyes , the reddish colour is caused by the low angle of the sun. They are beautiful birds , have a lovely range of song and are very tame around people, very fearless. This one was only a metre from me and watching Charlie with that eye.
